Description - All That I Remember About Dean Cola by Tania Chandler

The boys from back home stand beside the bed, watching her bleed onto the white sheet. 'He only said to scare her,' one of them says.

The boys from back home stand beside the bed, watching her bleed onto the white sheet. 'He only said to scare her,' one of them says.

Sidney is happily married to her firefighter husband and thinking about having a child, but her life has been marred by psychotic breakdowns. Haunted by memories of Dean Cola - the teenage crush who is an essential piece of the puzzle that is her past - she returns to the town where she grew up. Something unthinkable happened there, but is she strong enough to face it?

A compelling portrait of mental illness, memory, and the ways that the years when we 'come of age' can be twisted into trauma.
'Sensitive yet unflinching.'
-Anne Buist, author of The Long Shadow and Two Steps Onward

'A heart-shaking and unputdownable novel about perception. About the multitude of dangers in people and in words, the complexity of memory and trauma, and the depths of truth in emotion.'
-Angela Meyer, author of A Superior Spectre

'A vivid and compelling novel of character, community, and the past. With exquisitely rendered psychological subtlety and an unflinching gaze, it peels back the layers of memory, trauma, and time; at its centre is the wonderful Sidney, broken but resilient, and her unwavering drive to uncover the truth that will set her free.'
-Lucy Treloar, author of Wolfe Island
